I was searching for a great recipe for you that’s simple, takes very little time and cooks so quickly it will hardly heat your kitchen during the summer months.
I found my catch of the day thanks to celebrity chef and cookbook author Ina Garten, my favorite Barefoot Contessa.
This simple skillet dish is called Sole Meunière (pronounced “mah-nyear”).
But don’t let the name scare you. Meunière is really a fancy word for fish sautéed in butter and sprinkled with lemon juice and chopped parsley. That’s pretty much it! Once you grate and squeeze the lemons, the entire process only takes about 5 minutes, and it goes right from the skillet to the table. Not only have I never “Meunière” something but I’ve never had Dover Sole, so this week I experiences two “firsts” in the kitchen.
Is Sole Meunière destined to be one of my go-to dishes? I could answer that by telling you how many times I’ve made it since discovering it, but let’s just say a lot.
Sole Meunière is the perfect catch for dinner any night of the week.
